NOMINATED FOR THE 2017 ANTHONY AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL

When viral video footage from a terrorist attack in San Francisco reveals that a mob informant thought dead is still alive, FBI Special Agent Charlie Thompson knows just who to contact to save her witness from certain death: Michael Hendricks. He may be a hitman, but he's not a bad guy.

Teaming up with a green but determined tech whiz, Cameron, on the condition she leave him alone after the case, Hendricks reluctantly takes the job.

Of course, finding a man desperate to stay hidden is challenging enough without deadly competition, let alone when that competition's shadowy corporate backer is tangled in the terrorist conspiracy playing out around them...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Explosive and timely...Holm expertly balances weighty issues of national security with more intimate personal losses, and makes it clear that the best stories happen in the gray area between good and evil * Publishers Weekly *
Praise for THE KILLING KIND -- :
Fast-paced, full of twists that ingeniously come together for a thunderous finale, this is commercial thriller writing at its best and grand entertainment. * Maxim Jabukowski, LoveReading *
A ripping, twisting yarn you can read in one sitting -- Simon Kernick, author of The Final Minute
A story of rare, compelling brilliance, with a concept so high you'll need oxygen to finish it...This is a one-sitting, extravagant, mind-blowing reading pleasure -- David Baldacci
Roaring tough-guy fun * The Sunday Times *

Lean, brutal and riveting, THE KILLING KIND is the kind of novel you can't put down but also want to savour. With sharply etched characters, knifelike twists and hardboiled energy to burn, it's an utter winner, beginning to end.

-- Megan Abbott, bestselling author of THE END OF EVERYTHING
A fast-moving thriller with a clever premise...Who will best whom is by no means obvious in this fast-moving, witty tale of good guy versus bad guy versus worse guy. * Kirkus starred review *
I love Chris Holm. He can evoke a landslide of character in a single detail. THE KILLING KIND crackles with muscle and moxie and wit. I will read it again and again. -- Chelsea Cain, author of Heartsick
Pure joy...so fast-moving, so expertly arranged, every piece fitting together with a well-oiled snap, that it feels weaponized. Read it. Or else. -- Benjamin Percy * New York Times Book Review *
Holm is terrific at rendering characters with empathy and humour...you'll want to go along for the ride - but keep that seat belt fastened * Boston Globe *
